Both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were injured on worldwide duty Tuesday, the effects of which remain to be seen for the Ligue 1 club (Perhaps it could be an opening for American attacker Tim Weah, or a huge opening for Liverpool as the Reds prepare to face PSG in the Champions League).

In Tuesday's match, the Brazilian forward had treatment for an apparent groin problem after just five minutes and collapsed to the turf soon afterwards to boos from the crowd in the central English town of Milton Keynes.

"He felt discomfort", Lasmar said.

Mbappe was withdrawn before halftime in France's 1-0 friendly win against Uruguay when the forward fell awkwardly on his right shoulder after a challenge by Uruguay goalkeeper Marin Campana.

The severity of Neymar and Mbappe's injuries had already been played down but PSG have since issued an update to confirm the knocks are not serious.

After the match, Brazilian team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, said "it's too early" to give a definitive diagnosis regarding Neymar's injury, given that "it'll need 24 hours to know exactly what's happened".

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel will be hoping that both of his star players are fit to play when the French champions host Liverpool in Paris on Wednesday with both sides chasing qualification for the knockout phase of the Champions League.

For Kylian Mbappe a contusion of the right shoulder.

Brazil still managed to win 1-0 thanks to a goal from Richarlison, who replaced Neymar, whereas France edged Uruguay by the same scoreline after an Olivier Giroud penalty.
